When Appliances Fail and Cause Water Damage, Reach Out to SERVPRO
The appliances in your house are meant to make your life more comfortable. Manufacturers are building washing machines and dishwashers better than they ever were in the past yet washing machines and other water-based appliances are not resistant to breaking down or malfunctioning. Even loose connections could spell big trouble for the laundry room and surrounding areas of your home. When appliances such as washing machines fail and cause water damage, reach out to SERVPRO of East Phoenix.
When washing machines fail
A broken or ruptured washing machine hose is a common cause of water damage in homes. The frequency of this problem does not imply that a broken hose is the only culprit, however. Older appliances are more susceptible to breaking down internally as well, and bushings and bearings failing to do their job can result in an equally damaging scenario to your home.
What to do if your machine fails and floods
If you find that your washing machine or dishwasher is malfunctioning and dispersing water onto the floor, you need to act quickly to keep damage at a minimum. The first step is to shut off the water supply to the machine by following the lines on the back of the appliance to the plumbing fixtures. Shut off both water lines, regardless of if only one is causing the issue. Your next step is to call us at SERVPRO. Our experienced water remediation team responds quickly in these kinds of water emergency situations to help get the water cleaned up quickly. Fast responses prevent further damages to adjoining areas of your laundry room or kitchen and keep the overall restoration process the most targeted that it can be. Once the water supply has been shut off, our SERVPRO professionals can get to work on removing the water. Removal is accomplished through many different tools, from full-sized pump trucks to more economical vacuuming and portable pump solutions. Our professionals assess the situation and choose the tools and tactics to best tackle the problem.

SERVPRO Can Help Recover from a Flooded Kitchen
Modern kitchen appliances make everyday life easier.... until they break and cause water damage in your home. When your kitchen suffers water damage from a broken dishwasher, faucet, or garbage disposal, water can quickly spread to other areas of your property. It’s important to act fast to stop water from spreading, remove the water, and address damage as quickly as possible.
Call in water remediation specialists
It’s tempting to grab the mop and lots of towels and try to address the water damage yourself. However, there’s a risk that water has already seeped into walls, floors and behind cabinets, so it’s best to call in water remediation specialists. SERVPRO technicians use their IICRC training to get address water damage. Water can damage carpeting and padding, the floorboards underneath, and create odors that you find highly unpleasant. Prevent further damage, including mold and odors, by getting professional help with water damage.
How SERVPRO can help with a flooded kitchen
Our team starts with a thorough inspection to locate all sources of water and then tracks that water down. While water may have originated from a broken dishwasher, the moisture can easily spread to walls and other areas, so our technicians diligently search out all moisture for removal and remediation. Evaporation also plays a role in how water causes damage to the materials inside your home. Our technicians receive training on how to use various pieces of equipment that pinpoint not only where moisture exists, but also how much moisture materials contain. This is vital to restoring your home. Our drying equipment includes air movers that increase the air circulation at an extremely high rate and pull dampness off surfaces; this forces additional moisture to move closer to the surface for removal. Our machines remove water vapor from the air as it passes through the device, continually extracting moisture from the air. Drier air can more easily absorb water vapor from damp materials than saturated air. Different style heaters come into use to help increase the rate of evaporation of water from materials. Our goal is to get everything as dry as possible to stop further damage and prevent mold growth or odors from forming.
Call the pros when your kitchen floods
If you experience water damage in your kitchen, contact us immediately for help. SERVPRO technicians can mitigate the damage. We always treat your home in a professional manner, just like we would want others to handle our own dwellings. You can trust SERVPRO of East Phoenix to take care of water damage might affect your home's interior. Contact us at (602) 507-6163 so we can assist you in restoring your home.
Businesses Need to Be Prepared for Monsoon Damage
Our weather here in the Valley of the Sun will soon be experiencing some significant monsoon storms, which will come and go for the next few months, leaving people all over the Valley in need of recovery from storm damages. The monsoon storms bring dust, wind, rain, and dust. Homeowners who have lived through a few of these know the drill: batten down the hatches by putting away lawn furniture, tying down items that may otherwise blow, laying down pool umbrellas, and living with a less than a pristine pool for a few months. Businesses would do well to do some preparation as well.
The damage a monsoon can cause and how to prepare
While businesses may not have to worry about lawn furniture blowing into the pool, there are some risks of damage. Dust can be a nuisance, especially when it rolls in like one giant wall called a haboob. Haboobs generally appear with rushes of winds known as microbursts. These microbursts are extraordinarily strong and move quickly through the Valley, leaving behind properties with damage that require storm damage repairs. Though many dangers that come with the monsoon season are obvious, commercial properties are at risk from storm damages and even fire damages. Taking precautions now, before the storms begin could save you costly damages and overall hassle dealing with the aftermath of a monsoon. First, put a stop to any airflow within the building by closing all doors, windows, and air vents. Be sure that anything that can move outside is secured somehow or put it someplace where the winds can’t blow them somewhere else. Businesses often have a-frames or seating areas that can take flight during a storm. Even signage such as vinyl banners needs to be secured.
Once a storm has come through, look for damage
Many businesses lose power after a storm. While waiting for power to be restored, it’s a good idea to check for damages such as flooded floors, cracked windows or roof leaks. Some of these damages may not appear for a few days as water seeps in, so be diligent for the first few days after a storm. Keep in mind that even the smallest amount of water unchecked can lead to mold damage or odors. At SERVPRO of East Phoenix, we get all kinds of calls regarding the damages from the storms to local businesses. Commercial property owners continue to come to SERVPRO of East Phoenix for storm damage restorations and more. Our techs are certified and skilled always ready to help with any mitigation, remediation, abatement, cleanup, and reconstruction services your commercial building needs. Available 24/7 for immediate emergency service, give us a call if you experience any storm damages this upcoming monsoon season at 602-507-6163.
Use Water Remediation Specialists for Flooding in Your Home
Water damage can be very frustrating, and you need to remove it promptly. While sometimes the amount of water damage appears minimal, it’s always a good idea to have a water remediation specialist come out to ensure you don’t have more hidden water damage behind walls that can cause further damage down the road. Ensuring your house is completely dry is key to preventing additional damage from occurring.
How SERVPRO can help
Water damage issues can be deceiving. Accidently let that bathtub overflow? You grab a mop and think the job is done, but what if water has seeped undetected behind walls and cabinets? You may have tried to contain this problem on your own and quickly found out how frustrating that can be if you start noticing a musty smell, a sure sign of mold growth. That’s why it’s best to contact SERVPRO of East Phoenix water remediation specialists. At SERVPRO, we use air moving equipment because of its effectiveness. The air movement equipment increases evaporation primarily by creating airflow on the surface level, forcing the moisture into the air and capturing it with dehumidifiers. This process is not only safe and reliable but also pretty fast. You need professional service to ensure your premises is cleared of any issues after a flood.
Why removing water is harder than you think
One of the primary reasons why water removal is so difficult is the lack of reliable extraction equipment. Naturally, the first step to cleaning is removing water from your floors. While you may have a wet/dry shop vac to do the job, extractors from SERVPRO included wet-vacs, portable pumps, and truck-mounted equipment for large volume extraction. With various options for equipment, our techs can get the job done to prevent further damage such as mold growth from undetected moisture left behind.
SERVPRO of East Phoenix is your best choice when it comes to flooding in your home. With our qualified staff, you can rest easy knowing your home is well cared for. Call us today at (602) 507-6163 and let us take care of your water removal needs.

Work with SERVPRO for Biohazard Cleanup Situations
No mess is pleasant to clean up, but biohazard cleanups and restoration are especially difficult and unpleasant. These types of cleanup situations due to trauma, sewage backups, chemical spills, or other biohazards can be both dangerous and emotional, which is why it’s important to work with a company that is professional and well-trained in all aspects of biohazard clean up. Only specially trained disaster restoration company technicians are certified to complete this challenging and necessary job. SERVPRO of East Phoenix offers this crucial service in our community. Learn why you should work with SERVPRO for biohazard cleanup situations.
Crime scene cleanup
Crime scene cleanup can be one of the most difficult situations for homeowners to face. As the authorities depart from your home after a crime, it’s important to arrange for a biohazardous cleanup of your home as needed. Our highly trained trauma and crime scene cleanup division helps you with this difficult task. Our technicians are trained to follow all federal, state, and local rules to keep everyone safe until the job is complete. When a crime happens in your home, understanding how to handle the situation is important. Our technicians know that nothing can be touched until an official inquiry is conducted and completed by authorities. If the scene resulted in a situation where there might be blood and other bodily fluids, they understand that potential bloodborne pathogens may be present, and take great care to handle the situation carefully, following Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) guidelines. SERVPRO ensures that all technicians attending to the cleanup of a crime scene have the appropriate training and certifications necessary.
Fecal and other matter that may occur in a home after a sewage backup needs to be handled carefully, understanding that cleanup also needs to involve likely odor control. SERVPRO of East Phoenix’s trained technicians know there are three types of water that they may be dealing with: clean water, greywater, and black water. Unlike clean water, greywater, a category 2 contaminated water, may contain bacteria and viruses. Blackwater is extremely contaminated, and any contact should be avoided. Examples include flooding from rivers or streams, water from beyond the toilet trap, water from the toilet bowl with feces, or standing water that has begun to support microbial growth. Sewer backups and similar conditions should be handled immediately whenever possible. With SERVPRO’s 24-hour emergency services, homeowners have a place to turn quickly.
Chemical spills and other biohazards
Exposure to chemical contaminants can be very serious. A failure to properly remove such substances from your home as quickly as possible can contribute to a dangerous situation.

They are equipped with the necessary safety apparatus and cleaning products and can help transform these environments back into clean, safe homes and offices. If you experience a chemical spill in your home, do not try to do clean-up on your own! It’s important to call a trained professional.

The Importance of Professional Cleaning After Fire Damage
As a homeowner, it is prudent to know the right steps to take if your property suffers a fire damage incident. Different types of fires require different restoration measures, and as a result, it’s a good idea to contact licensed service providers to mitigate further damage. Remediation professionals who are IICRC certified and use relevant tools and procedures to restore your contents are the best way to ensure the job is done right.
Types of fire damage that can occur
There are different levels of fire damages that any resident is likely to experience – minimal (limited to one small area), substantial, and major fire damage. Each is associated with varying amounts of smoke residues, affects different areas, and the severity of the disaster differs. While wet or dry cleaning can be enough to restore minor fire damages, extensive procedures may be required when restoring specific fire disasters. Our SERVPRO technicians inspect your property to determine the extent of the damage before conducting appropriate restoration procedures. Within these types of fires, technicians will also take into consideration what kinds of materials burn, such as plastics, wood, etc. to determine the best course of action.
The remediation approach
Cleaning is one of the procedures that may be recommended if the fire did not result in a complete loss of property. Before this procedure can start, it is essential to know the kind of residues, the surface they are resting on, and how to find, remove and dispose of them. After pretesting and inspecting the residues, a technician can choose the right restoration method to use and will advise the homeowners of their approach.
After our SERVPRO technicians have identified the residues, they capture and remove them using specialized techniques such as vacuuming and dissolving. When a fire burns, it gives off smoke residues that attach to the surrounding surfaces. When these residues, also known as soot, are loosely attached to an area, removing them using vacuuming may be an option. Before performing vacuuming, our qualified technicians always ensure the area is dry to get the best results possible.
When the residues are rigidly attached to the surface, such as a stickier residue, dissolving them may be necessary to get the best results. SERVPRO technicians use cleaning products to dissolve the particles and then flush, rinse and dry the area once it is clean. After the cleaning process, SERVPRO technicians follow the local requirements to dispose of the particles appropriately.

Tools of the Trade Help SERVPRO Do the Best Job
It’s important to have the right equipment to get the job done. That’s why SERVPRO of East Phoenix uses several types of equipment to address any fire, water, or mold remediation issues you might have. Learn more about the tools we use to get the job done right!
All the SERVPRO Tools for Our Work
At SERVPRO of East Phoenix, helping our customers who have experienced water, fire, or mold damage areas is our top priority. We know that using the proper equipment makes a measurable difference in reducing loss. When time matters, technology, and equipment must be counted on to perform. Here are some of the tools we use to help get your property to its preloss condition. Each machine and piece of equipment has a crucial role in the restoration process and every SERVPRO restoration technician is trained to use each piece of equipment to its highest potential.
Portable extractors for water removal – These are used for cleaning carpets, cleaning upholstery, and removing water from floors after water damage or flood. Restoration technicians use this machine for variable heat-controlled cleaning, including to heat the rinse solutions to clean more effectively. With this machine, we can expedite the removal of water and humidity from damaged materials and textiles to help restore it to preloss conditions.
Ozone generator for odors - These generators eliminate a variety of odors caused by animals, cigarette smoke, mold and mildew, fire, and water damage. It generates ozone which chemically reacts with odor-causing molecules to oxidize residues and remove the odors. Once the process is complete, ozone quickly reverts to the typical oxygen molecule, leaving no residue. Once the odor is gone, the results are permanent.
Dehumidification equipment for moisture - This increases the rate of evaporation by removing water vapor from the air. Our highly trained technicians position dehumidifiers strategically in a water-damaged structure, so the moist, humid air moves through the unit while dry, warm air is discharged. We use the dehumidifiers, primarily because it provides a constant source of dry air to enhance the restoration process.
Air movers to reduce drying time - Air movers are used in water damage restoration to enhance evaporation at the surface level and reduce drying time. They introduce airflow at the surface level and replace the highly saturated air with drier air to enhance dissipation. SERVPRO technicians operate air movers in different positions, offering flexibility in how to direct the airflow for the best possible outcome.
Truck-mounted extraction units for the big jobs - These units consist of multiple smaller components, which work together to make one of the best pieces of cleaning equipment in the industry. Our technicians know the specific environment needed for this piece of machinery to work it’s best and how to maintain it appropriately for safety.
Our equipment is tested
SERVPRO tests all equipment before putting the items in the product line. To provide the best service to our customers, we must know how the truck mount works, how to set up and maintain the unit, how to use it safely, how to clean the vehicle interior, unit, tools, and hoses needed, and how to inspect all equipment and accessories for any damage, leaks, or other wear. The use of these equipment options helps us get your water or fire disaster back to its preloss condition. SERVPRO of East Phoenix is always here to help! If you’ve suffered water, fire, or mold damage contact us immediately at 602-507-6163 to get the job done right with the right equipment!
Monsoon Storm Damage Facts and Tips
Water from a monsoon does not have to spread over a large part of the home to cause flood damage. A water intrusion in a small area can do damage to ceilings, walls, flooring, and other materials, and opens up the potential for mold growth. Learn more about monsoon storm damage and what to do.
Storm damaged roofs
When a roof gets damaged in a Phoenix home and water enters the attic space, flood damage removal needs to happen as quickly as possible to mitigate the amount of damage. Sometimes when space is limited, SERVPRO technicians must get creative to get the job done. If the repair to the roof is not completed during the time our technicians are working, they can apply a temporary barrier to prevent any additional water from entering until the repair is finished. Our goal is to stop further damage and help repair the roof as quickly as possible to keep the whole home protected.
Standing water after a storm
Standing water needs to be removed as quickly as possible to halt any further damage to the home and its contents after a flood. SERVPRO technicians can use long hose attachments on extractors to get rid of the standing water, even in the most hard-to-reach places. We position air movers and dehumidifiers to move air out and lower moisture as fast as possible. If the ceiling below an attic is showing signs of water saturation, technicians can drill weep holes to assist with drying. We use moisture probes to determine how far-reaching the water intrusion was so there is no potential for mold growth from untreated areas. After drying the area, SERVPRO technicians wipe down the affected areas to sanitize and inhibit the growth of bacteria and microbes. If affected drywall cannot be saved through our drying techniques, damaged sagging drywall is removed for safety. Often drying is enough to eliminate odors left from water. All of this is meant to stop mold and odors from permeating the area. If there are any residual odors, we have the resources to neutralize them thoroughly.
We're here if you need flood damage help
SERVPRO of East Phoenix is available 24/7 when you need flood removal from your home. The faster the process starts, the faster our expert technicians can make it "Like it never even happened." Call us immediately if you experience monsoon flood damage!
Broken Appliances Can Cause Water Damage and Mold
Today’s appliances are really quite a modern wonder. It’s amazing what they can do, from working on a timer to being controlled by an app on your phone. Unfortunately, most still lack the ability to warn you ahead of time if they’re about to break or burst. The appliances in your house are meant to make your life much more comfortable. While manufacturers are building these appliances better than they ever were in the past, washing machines and other appliances are not resistant to breaking down or malfunctioning. Even loose connections could spell big trouble for the laundry room and surrounding areas of your home, including water damage and mold.
What to do if your washing machine breaks
A broken or ruptured washing machine hose is a common cause of water damage in homes. The commonality of this problem does not imply that a broken hose is the only culprit, however. Older appliances are more susceptible to breaking down internally, and bushings and bearings failing to do their job can result in an equally damaging scenario. The problem is that oftentimes, you have no idea they’re breaking down until it’s too late! If you find that your washing machine is malfunctioning and pouring water onto the floor, you need to act quickly. The first thing that you need to do is to shut off the water supply to the machine by following the lines on the back of the appliance to the plumbing fixtures. Shut off both water lines, regardless if only one is causing the issue. Your next step is to call the professionals at SERVPRO of East Phoenix.
How water damage can end up being more than simply water damage
Another challenge of a ruptured washing machine or one that has been leaking slowly over a period of time is the damage you don’t see. If water has been allowed to seep into walls and floors for a long period of time, mold growth may occur. It’s yet another reason to call a professional if a washing machine breaks, as you may have unseen damage that needs to be addressed.
How SERVPRO can help
Our experienced water remediation team responds quickly in these kinds of emergency situations to help get the water cleaned up quickly and thoroughly. A quick response can prevent further damages to adjoining areas of your laundry room by stopping the spread of water. Once the water supply has been shut off, our SERVPRO professionals can get to work on removing the water. Removal is accomplished through many different tools, from full-sized pump trucks to more economical vacuuming and portable pump solutions. Our technicians are trained to quickly assess the situation and use the techniques necessary for the best, quickest results.

It’s Not Too Late to Get an Emergency Readiness Plan in Place for Your Phoenix Business
When an unexpected disaster occurs, many businesses, regardless of size, struggle to recover in the aftermath entirely—having a solid plan in place for your employees to be prepared for emergencies can make the difference between surviving a disaster or not. Does your business have an emergency readiness plan? It’s not too late to get one from SERVPRO of East Phoenix!
How unexpected situations impact businesses
Some businesses may never recover following an unexpected circumstance, having lost too much time, clientele or inventory during the recovery process, or property damaged beyond repair. A fire to a business is devastating and can cause it to shut down completely; for many companies, regardless of size, extensive downtime can mean a substantial financial impact. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), almost 40 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors after a disaster. However, the ones that do survive usually have a preparedness plan in place.
What is an emergency readiness plan (ERP)?
While an emergency readiness plan can’t stop an unexpected incident from occurring, it can help a business be ready to handle a disaster during the event and be better prepared to recover after a disaster. One way SERVPRO helps a business of any size be prepared is with the ERP profile. Pre-planning can serve as an insurance policy aimed at peace of mind. And knowing you are "Ready for whatever happens" speaks trust to your clients and employees that in the event your business is affected by a disaster, they don’t necessarily have to be.
By developing a SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile for your business, you minimize business interruption by having an immediate plan of action, regardless of the situation. Knowing what to do and what to expect in advance is the key to timely mitigation. It can help minimize how water damage, fire damage, severe vandalism, or any other situation can affect your business.
The SERVPRO Emergency READY Profile Advantage

How Can SERVPRO Help with Document Restoration?
After a fire, flood, or mold issue, important documents are often damaged and at risk of being non-restorable. As a leader in the restoration industry, SERVPRO of East Phoenix knows timely mitigation is the key to recovering damaged items like documents before it’s too late for businesses. Water or smoke damaged paper can rapidly deteriorate, but with proper handling, our highly trained restoration professionals can help you recover your important files utilizing a variety of methods.
Document restoration options
Depending on the type of documents and the level of damage, we have five options for the restoration of documents:
- Air Drying
- Freezer Drying
- Vacuum Freeze Drying
- Vacuum Thermal Drying
We get a lot of questions about this option! Vacuum freeze-drying is one of the most effective way to restore documents after a water loss. Our Document Restoration Team uses sublimation, which skips the liquid stage to turn a solid right into a vapor to avoid causing more damage.
Often, documents must be completely destroyed to protect a business’s liabilities, image or other information. We guarantee that your sensitive files will be disposed of properly.
Minimize additional damage
When your valuable documents, including photographs, are damaged by water, extreme caution should be taken to help ensure the water damage does not destroy the document. Although some documents may not be restored to pre-water damage condition, SERVPRO of East Phoenix can save a great deal and help minimize additional damage.
To learn more about our Document Restoration services, contact SERVPRO of East Phoenix at 602-507-6163. We offer 24-hour emergency services in our local community. Don’t hesitate if your documents are damaged; contact us immediately!

Practical Help Homeowners Need After Crime Scene Situation in Phoenix
The stress of dealing with criminal activity in your home shouldn’t be worsened by having to clean up after the situation. Because the substances needing disposal are often dangerous or difficult for many people to manage, it is best to engage a professional service. SERVPRO of East Phoenix offers compassionate and properly trained technicians to put your home back in order.
Professional help with crime scene abatement
More than one homeowner has had to deal with a crime scene situation in their home; whether it involves blood pathogens or drug cleanup, the job can be challenging, to say the least. Our trauma and crime scene abatement team knows and follows applicable Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations and rules when cleaning and restoring your house.
What SERVPRO can do
If ever you needed SERVPRO to come through on our promise to make it “Like it never even happened,” crime scene cleanup is near the top of the list. Biohazards like blood and dangerous and irritating chemicals suddenly permeate your home, and you have neither the knowledge nor the energy to deal with their appropriate removal. Specialized training prepares our crews to deal with all the debris throughout your home due to the crime and the police actions and follow up. We take all precautions to manage every cleanup aspect relating to the crime and its aftermath. Knowing what you or your family endured is the motivation to clear away every scrap of evidence of what took place in your home.
Services after crime scene cleanup
Unfortunately, the work doesn’t end after the initial crime scene cleanup. Depending on what caused the crime scene in the first place, from fights, debris from firearms or other weapons, and the whole gambit of police evidence gathering materials end up bagged and taken from your premises, there’s more to be dealt with. Carpets cleaned, walls washed, holes filled in, and touched up with paint go a long way to restoring a sense of control and peace even after disruptive forces shatter your home.

When You Have Fire Damage in Your Home, You Need Help Fast
Home fires can be a devastating experience to a homeowner. Whether it is a substantial fire or even a small kitchen fire, the aftermath can be dramatic to deal with. Not only do homeowners have to face the damage done by the flames themselves, they also must address the impact of the damage done by firefighters to extinguish the flames. Fire damage, soot, smell, and water damage are all typical results of a house fire. It’s essential to get a professional out as quickly as possible to address the situation. When you have fire damage to your home, you need help fast. SERVPRO of East Phoenix is the company to call with our 24-hour emergency restoration service.
We are faster to any disaster
This phrase is more than a catchy rhyme! SERVPRO of East Phoenix provides emergency cleaning and restoration services 24 hours a day, 7 days a week—including all holidays. You can expect an immediate response time, day, or night. We understand that time is of the essence when it comes to situations such as fire damage or water damage in your home. The more time that passes, the more extensive the long-term damage can be. It’s not just a matter of inconvenience for homeowners when dealing with soot, smoke damage, and water damage; not addressing these issues quickly can make things worse. The professionals at SERVPRO of East Phoenix share your sense of urgency to get the situation addressed immediately.
Fire and water damage timeline
While the flames may be out, the damage remains and needs to be addressed. The water and other products used to extinguish the fire leave behind damage that needs to be done, and understanding the timeline to address the damage facilitates a better recovery. Here is a basic fire and water damage timeline to be aware of and illustrates why time is of the essence:
Within minutes of fire and water damage
- Water quickly spreads throughout your home, saturating everything.
- Water absorbs into walls, floors, and upholstery.
- Furniture wood finishes may bleed and stain flooring.
- Photos, books, and other papers start to swell and warp.
Within 24 hours:
- Drywall begins to warp.
- Metal surfaces begin to tarnish or rust.
- Furniture starts to warp, swell, and crack.
- Dyes and inks from cloth and paper goods spread and stain flooring and furniture.
- A musty odor appears.
After 48 hours:
- Mold and mildew may grow.
- Doors, windows, and all wall studs swell and warp.
- Paint begins to peel and blister.
- Wood flooring warps.
After a week:
- Restoration time and cost increase dramatically; replacing contaminated materials and structural rebuilding may be extensive.
- Structural safety, mold growth, and biohazard contaminants pose serious risks to occupants.
Not all these things will happen in every case, but it’s essential to know how quickly initial damage can spread and multiply to bigger issues, and why it’s critical to work with pros like SERVPRO.

Access To Mold Damage Mitigation Services That Help You Maintain Your Phoenix Area Home Properly
Phoenix Homes with Mold Damage Call on SERVPRO for Remediation
SERVPRO Can Reduce Treatment Time and Costs with Fast Mold Remediation
After discovering mold on your Phoenix area property, you might wonder if calling a professional remediation company is necessary, or if everyone is over-reacting. Well, considering that some species of mold can cause health effects, we tend to lean more towards dealing with the problem quickly, rather than leaving anything to chance.
Mold damage can make your Phoenix-area property look more like a war zone than a happy home and the longer you wait to address the situation, the longer the remediation process can take. Under some circumstances, you may even find yourself looking for temporary housing, which would leave anyone annoyed, depressed, and concerned.
Unfortunately, the dangers are real. Even though mold is a naturally occurring fungus, used by our environment to recycle a variety of materials back into our ecosystem, larger concentrations may cause harm. Mold only needs water, air, and a food source to begin a growth cycle in your home, making it somewhat easy for this problem to exist.
Since oxygen is everywhere and your home is made up of several organic materials, it only takes a small water leak, spill, or accident to get things started. SERVPRO technicians help you understand how to make your home healthier, by improving ventilation and controlling the relative humidity found in your home. Your indoor humidity level should remain below 50% at all times, even when you are on vacation or away for extended periods.
You can avoid spending considerable amounts of money having your home tested for mold. The species of mold that exists in your home is not relevant regarding remediation. It is better to have your home inspected by a qualified professional, like SERVPRO’s IICRC certified mold remediation technicians, who have the personnel, equipment, and experience to show you where mold starts and help you learn how to react if or when you find it.
SERVPRO mold remediation services help you control your indoor living environment and prevent mold growth from returning. If you contact us at the earliest signs of mold growth in your home, you can ensure minimal disruption to your daily life.

Water Removal in Phoenix Preserves and Protects You and Your Property
SERVPRO Removes and Cleans Carpets in Phoenix After Water Leaks
Call on SERVPRO for Extraction and Cleanup After Problems in Your Phoenix Home
Whether it is a residential or commercial property, water damage can be very frustrating, and you need to remove it promptly. Ensuring your residence is completely dry when you are not working with a company like SERVPRO can be challenging.
Phoenix has encountered a lot of water removal problems in the recent past. These issues often disrupt your daily operations and the comfortable feeling of your premises. You may have tried to contain this problem on your own and quickly found out how frustrating that can be. The secret lies in using the right equipment which you probably do not have stored in your garage.
At SERVPRO, we use a lot of air moving equipment because of their effectiveness. Let us take the example of water removal from your carpet, any other method can take a lot of time and may not produce good results. The air movement equipment, however, increases evaporation primarily by creating airflow on the surface level, forcing the moisture into the air and capturing it with dehumidifiers. This process is not only safe and reliable, but also pretty fast.
Apart from the type of equipment we use, the chemical products at SERVPRO are safe and environmentally friendly. Some of the chemicals you use at home are also not active enough to kill all the different varieties of bacteria and fungi. You need professional service to ensure your premise is cleared of any impurities and does not affect your health.
One of the primary reasons why water removal is a nightmare to many is the lack of a reliable extraction equipment. Naturally, the first step to cleaning is removing water from your floors. Extractors from SERVPRO included wet-vacs, portable pumps and truck-mounted equipment for large volume extraction. The portable extractor is excellent for accessing areas that are hard to reach.
SERVPRO of East Phoenix is your best solution as far as water removal is concerned. With our qualified staff, you are guaranteed excellence services at the best possible price. Call us today at (602) 507-6163 and let us take care of your water removal needs.

Moments in Family History Require Crime Scene Cleanup in Phoenix
SERVPRO Makes Crime Scene Cleanup in Phoenix Easier
Trust SERVPRO for Empathetic Crime Scene Cleanup
Violent crime is increasing in many areas of the Nation, and statistics are beginning to point toward more and more families having someone close to them be a victim of senseless, brutal criminal activity. When a person is murdered, or just simply dies alone, the immediate area can be left in a highly contaminated state.
Surviving family members in Phoenix need professionals who can empathize with their pain while providing the necessary services inherent to crime scene cleanup procedures. Without both of these factors, families can suffer for longer, more intense periods than families who find professionals who help them cope with the complex and harsh realities of the immediate situation.
We train our technicians to be more than the average professional restoring homes and businesses. They understand that it is vital always to give those left behind by the death, particularly a violent and unexpected one, of a loved member of their family, the compassion they need and deserve. To do otherwise would create an additional injury for the grieving family members. Moreover, we are also members of this community.
Minimizing the amount of confusion that cleaning up after the police and coroner's staff have left can often be aided by having one specific person on our team designated to both inform the family of any new developments and answer any of their questions. The death (if there was such an unfortunate occurrence), the scene, strangers in and out of the home, the neighbors, distant relatives, the ongoing questions, and the emotional toll, all contribute to the stress. Cleaning the scene should be the last thing you and your family need to worry about in situations like this.
The IICRC has recently published internationally accepted standards, protocols, and procedures that provide protections for affected families and technicians for use in cleaning up locations where criminal activity occurred. Moreover, other highly sensitive situations exist. While this is a newly published document, the contents were largely known to those companies, such as SERVPRO, with experience in handling materials that were potentially hazardous to the environment or human health.
At SERVPRO of East Phoenix, we understand that losing a family member to any cause can be devastating. When that death is part of a heinous crime, the trauma and senselessness are much greater than what many realize. We can help your family by ensuring any crime scene cleanup is carried out professionally by compassionate and qualified technicians. Whenever your family needs help with a traumatic experience such as this, call us at (602) 507-6163. We are always available to answer the phone and take your call.

Phoenix Homes Receive the SERVPRO Treatment After a Water Loss
Don't Let Water and the Sands of Time Ruin Your Phoenix Home--Call SERVPRO
SERVPRO Specialists and Your Home's Water Damage Mitigation Needs in Phoenix
SERVPRO technicians understand the manner in which water can damage your home's interior in Phoenix. Because of its inherent properties, water can end up in almost any location in your home. It does not require a significant leak or broken pipe for problems to start occurring. A burst water line to your refrigerator can create extensive destruction.
When your Phoenix kitchen suffers water damage, and it then spreads to other areas of your property, SERVPRO technicians use their IICRC training to get things right again. Water can damage carpeting and padding, the floorboards underneath, and create odors that you most likely find highly unpleasant.
Our team starts with a thorough inspection to locate all sources of water and then tracks that water down. Evaporation also plays a role in how water causes damage to the materials inside your home. Our technicians receive training on how to use various pieces of equipment that reveal not only where moisture exists, but also how much moisture materials contain. This is crucial to restoring your home, so it is again “Like it never even happened.”
Our drying equipment includes air movers that increase the air circulation at an extremely high rate and also pulls dampness off of surfaces. This works quite efficiently because water continually moves to find equilibrium, moving into drier areas, and this forces additional moisture to move closer to the surface.
Our desiccant machines remove water vapor from the air as it passes through the device, continually extracting moisture from the air. Drier air can more easily absorb water vapor from damp materials than saturated air. We are always working to remove moisture.
Different style heaters come into use to help increase the rate of evaporation of water from materials. We use these on floors, the interiors of walls, and other places that need a little more help in drying out.
Wherever water causes damage inside your home, SERVPRO technicians can mitigate the damage. We always treat your home in a professional manner, just like we would want others to handle our own dwellings.
You can trust SERVPRO of East Phoenix to take care of the many ways that water damage might affect your home's interior. Contact us at (602) 507-6163, our 24-hour service line number, so we can assist you in restoring your home.
